COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered, and lagered but unpasteurised.
Launched in 2000 as Jenlain Blonde. Changed to Jenlain No. Six in March 2005, with Jenlain Blonde name being used for a new 7.5% beer.
With its splendid golden hues and fruity tones, Jenlain No. Six has a distinctive bitter finish and a hoppy nose. The barley-scented liquor sparkles under its light, foamy head. Light and thirst-quenching, with a rich characteristic savour, it is best served at between 5 and 6°C, with a meal or as an aperitif.

One of the best french ales, light in color but robust and full flavored a great summer drink, the blonde is a big step up from the brown. This squeeks by 3 monts as the best French ale

High white head on a clear yellow body. From the lookj of it, on might think this just another pilsner. But this first impression is denied as soon as you taste the beer: it has a very nice sweetness, avoiding much of the hoppy bitterness characteristic of many blond beers. I was a bit bothered by the clear bottle: this brew deserves better.

Incredibly floral scent. Smells like an english garden. Gold in colour, with little head and no lacing. Taste is slightly sweet initially. Then a hopped bitternes, with a faint sweet finish. Generally very pleasing.

2006 vintage bottle pour.The aroma was sweet malt with hints of citrus.Nice amber/gold color with a good white head.Flavor was a nice mild hop and sweet malt flavor.Had a bit o a metallic aftertaste but was not too harsh.Alcohol was hidden well and the carbonation was very good and went down easy.I like this and could be a really good session beer.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Pours a hazy pale orange with lots of bubbles. Fruit aroma, notes of cherry and apple. Nutty roasted malts. Sweet, malty flavor. Lightly tart and fruity - cherries. Bitter hop finish. A bit sticky but overall drinkable.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2002
I also like this fruity beer better than the regular Jenlain. Pale yellow clear with small but slowly evaporating head. Intriguing aroma - woody, hops, fruity caramel, floral nectar, pasta/cookie dough, and Vanilla!! Medium body. Smooth, somewhat oily feeling and looking, sweetish caramel and and reasonable bitter balanced start. Dry slightly raw finish. A very interesting beer for a blonde. A good job lads - keepem coming!

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2002
Hop and a faint smell of vanilla caramel. Golden yellow, medium head, small bubbles. A bit sweet. Some harshness comes in at the end. A well balanced beer.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Yellow, with a big ass white head. Sourish aroma of corn and vegetable that is more appealing than that description makes it sound. Flavors of wheat, maybe some soy, white wine and sour apple nicely blended together. Very soft palate.
